Needed to hand-cut some fence pickets. Tried a coping saw but that was too labour-intensive and the cuts were sloppy. Decided to go ahead and spend the money on a proper jig saw. Always liked Dewalt quality. Found what I wanted on the Sears website, then found out they had a sale and also a promotional weekend. I also saved shipping by picking it up at my local Sears as they had this item in stock.
This jig saw is easy to use. The hand grip is comfortable and guides you nicely. Due to the low vibration, you can get very accurate cuts from this tool. I'm very satisfied. I do wish the battery-powered version was affordable as I have quite a few Dewalt 18v tools.
I have had this tool for over 11 years. I have used it more than 20 building projects. This jigsaw is a workhorse with convenient features like a quick release and a variable speed trigger you will not be disappointed. I’m confident this jigsaw still be working when my sons is old Enough to do construction. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This is when I realized how superior DeWALT tools were compared to cheaper power tools. For years I had a cheap jigsaw and it made sloppy cuts that were not square. I avoided using my jigsaw for this reason. I eventually bought this DeWALT and never looked back. Now I am pretty confident in my ability to use my jigsaw, and I know it is because of the quality of the tool. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
